Sounds like er´rybody is exhausted after RAGNAR. Serves you all right for being so awesome and crazy enough to run that thing. Bless your hearts... Loved the pictures :)
This week we had intercambios with other hermanas.. and the hermana that I worked with for the whole day was AMERICAN. Not just American.. but from Preston Idaho, so that was fun. We sure got some stares, though. I think some people thought we were lost. Anyroad, it was a great day! We contacted, we taught.. we hit up dairy queen.. It was a day of success. It was really fun to see how much we have improved since our MTC days. We still had our moments of "I dunno what they just said" and "What?" and "Nope. No entiendo." But overall, #éxito.
We had our "real" zone conference with the president this week. It was even better then the one before! We have a new culture in our mission. What is this exciting new culture, you ask? Calm down! It´s fine! I´ll tell you! 1. We leave our house everyday pretending like we do not have anybody that we are teaching. We need to have 2 new investigators every day! So that´s an exciting challenge. And 2. We are learning to use silence as one of the tools of teaching. Turns out, the Spirit cannot do his job in the lessons if we don´t let him. He needs us to stop talking so that he can touch their hearts and help them know right there that what we are saying is true. We have had some really special moments as we apply this technique. We also talked about how important the Book of Mormon is in conversion. OH it was great. I love President and Hermana Morales!
So, Karl sounds like a champ. I approve. As long as he doesn´t replace me in your hearts, everything is fine. Just remember still you have a loving (and still sweating) misionera here in Mexico.
I love you I love you I love you!!
